UK esports organisation Reason Gaming is back in the hands of its former owner.
Adam Heath – who also runs UKCSGO, the UK Esports Awards and Rasta Gaming – has regained ownership of the org from Gfinity.
Reason first joined the Gfinity Elite Series just over two years ago, a tournament which is now seemingly dormant.
Esports News UK understands that Gfinity took a controlling share of Reason Gaming as well as rights to the brand back in 2017, to help it grow and enter the Elite Series without the entrance fee.
Reason had a good impact in the Elite Series, ending Season 2 as Rocket League and franchise champions. Now Adam Heath has retained ownership of the org after talks with Gfinity.
Adam Heath said in a post on the Reason website: “Over the last two-three months I have been in negotiations for me to reclaim the full control of Reason Gaming from our silent partner, so we can move forward with our post Gfinity Elite Series plans.
“We have a lot of things planned over the coming months so keep an eye on our social media for updates!”
The org has a number of Street Fighter V players and plans on expanding into other titles in the future.
Reason has also brought on board Steve ‘Undacuva’ Allen as sales and marketing director and Graham ‘messioso’ Pitt as operations director.
